Patent / Technologies / Methodologies / System etc. (Upto Five) :

  1. Pusa Basmati 1718 : A near isogenic line of Pusa Basmati 1121 carrying bacterial blight resistance genes xa13+Xa21.
  1. Pusa Basmati 1728: This variety is an isogenic line of Pusa Basmati 6 for bacterial blight resistance. This was developed through marker assisted backcross breeding wherein genes xa13 and Xa21 were pyramided in the background of Pusa Basmati 6.
  1. Pusa Basmati 1637: It is a near isogenic line of Pusa Basmati 1 incorporated with blast resistance gene Pi9 through marker assisted backcross breeding.
  1. Pusa Basmati 1609: It is the first Basmati rice variety developed by pyramiding blast resistance genes Piz5 and Pi54 through MAS which showed resistance to leaf and neck blast, suitable for western Uttar Pradesh, National Capital Region of Delhi, Uttarakh
  1. Pusa Samba 1850: It is the near isogenic line of Samba Mahsuri carrying blast resistance genes Pi1, Pi54 and Pita
